UUUUUH-OH....

Well, we are packing up and getting ready to load up and head up North to that big metropolis known as Houston. Well, I say we are but we are on slight hold right now. Lil'Gal walked into our bedroom at almost 7:am with the comment, "Mama? I don't feel good and my tummy hurts...." UH-OH. I feel her forehead which feels slightly warm, too much snuggling? Her tummy feels like fire. Thermometer verdict? 99.5. Not too bad. But, we just don't know where it is going. So, things are organized and ready. DH is cleaning out his truck to make room for our tons of travel gear. Lil'Gal had tylenol and a nice warm shower and some cartoons. She has finally motivated herself enough to go play in her room. So, maybe this is just a little tiny bug. Though, I always hold that fear in the back of my mind of appendectomy ever since Farmer, Jr. went through that. I know the chances are highly unlikely and y'all know I am an optimist. But, still, we have to be realistic too. DH's comment was, "It's not her appendix." Um, DH? That's what you said the last time... Seriously, I know that's not it. 99.99999% know. But, it would totally suck to have a child admitted to the hospital for surgery miles and miles AND miles away from home. It happened to Sweet D and was, No Bueno. My real concern is that I don't want to get four hours away and have a small child vomiting -- or even two hours away and vomiting in the vehicle. That would be extremely, NO BUENO. And, we don't want to drag a child away from the comforts of her home with a high fever....which, she apparently doesn't have at this point. The tylenol probably broke the low grade which explains why she's playing peacefully in her room. So, I thinking we will be okay for the trip. This is a very important trip. Tonight, the Collegiate has his Eagle Scout ceremony. (I don't know why they waited so long to do this thing). Dad's even driving down from AR. The Collegiate has to drive in from LA. Monday is the double funeral for TG's parents. This I do not want to miss. It is imperative that we are there to support our friends. It's a big weekend. And, as mentioned, we'll be staying at SJ's place tonight and he doesn't have wireless...or internet at all I don't think. [I'm taking my airport, just in case a neighbor has wireless and I can access their signal. :-D Not sure if it will work that way, but hey? Doesn't hurt to try.] Sunday night we will have a hotel (with wireless internet) and I will catch up with everyone then. Thank goodness for text messaging or I don't think I would make it. I love the internet like a chain smoker loves a carton of smokes. I have come to realize that I am truly an addict. I'm addicted to blogging, to my email account(s), and Google. *sigh* Wish us luck! Happy Saturday (I'll sneak back if I can before we leave.) ;-)

Ugg, I just had sickies so I feel for ya! Only I didn't have to travel. We just stayed in our comfy jammies and hung out.

I hope you have fun, and I flip out when I don't have internet. I, too, am addicted.

Eesh, hope Lil Gal feels better soon. It's too bad you've left without being able to see my latest post. But no worries. It'll be there when you get back. :) Hope you have safe travels!

Back in January of 2005, we had to drive to NC for a funeral. We stopped overnight in DC, and it was then that I realized Jacob (then 3) was acting a little wonky. But we made it to Raleigh with nary an incident.

But just as we were coming down the hotel elevator to leave for the funeral, Jacob began vomiting . . . everywhere! The manager was SO nice, though. She even took Jacob's blankie and washed it, and she also brought him ginger ale and crackers.

Ian went on to the funeral while I stayed with Jacob, and then we had to find a doctor (who was a complete a$$). Jacob ended up having strep throat.

BUT . . . we all survived. And you're more of a "Glass Half Full Gal" than I am, so I know you'll be fine!!

Hope to hear from you soon. :-)
